Whether in classic movies, antique stores, or attics, the sight of battered steamer trunks covered in travel stickers can inspire intense wanderlust. But dragging cumbersome luggage around on an outback safari is a practice best left to centuries past. National Geographic’s Kontiki luggage collection captures some of the look and feel of the golden age of travel, but incorporates cutting-edge materials and design to meet the demands of the 21st century.
For an overnight getaway, our 30″ Cargo Duffel bag is the perfect pack-and-go choice. Distressed, PET recycled poly fabric with faux leather accents and antique brass hardware looks like it’s been around the world and back, but is strong enough to stand up to bumps and dings. Corner guards, skid bars, and a kick plate add to the durability. Easy-access front pockets keep small necessities in quick reach. The large main compartment is lined with fabric that features a map of the world, capturing the National Geographic spirit. The adjustable shoulder strap and top handles are cushioned for comfort.
